Parenthood....

The world keeps getting messier .... things cannot get better any time soon .... moral standards are lowered every minute .... compromises made without a thought .... show me the money ... just show me the money!

..... parenthood keeps getting complicated .... sex and violence on TV and the net ... rebellion and disrespect is "cool" ... profanity is "cool" ... 'protected sex' is "cool" ... 'designer drugs' are "cool" ... anything goes so long as u are not caught ... and even if u are caught ... it's "cool" ....

Why would anyone want to bring an innocent child into this world? why? .... they would then have to see the world trying to snatch away the innocence and purity from their baby .... see the world trying to corrupt and destroy their very flesh and blood .... all over again .... are they ready to watch their child become what they are today? ... probably even worse??? ... the world is like a raging fire .... never satisfied .... always trying to consume whatever innocence, love and purity that's left .... leaving only charred remains .... of a once pleasant soul ....

Why would you bring a child into this forsaken place?
..... maybe because all hope is not lost ..... the world will seek to destroy, but will not always succeed .... maybe because you get another chance to defeat the world.... living through your child .... maybe because you may be the fortunate parent of one of the few children who were not conquered by the world .... but who conquered the world .... the proud parents of great men and women whose names will be written forever in the annals of human history .... serving as examples for future generations ....

All hope is not lost .... good still exists .... it's just that we cynics have become accustomed to seeing the bad and the ugly, overlooking the good .... maybe we need to change our perspective .... maybe we need a child's help to do it .... maybe ......

Am I high or something? ... absolute gibberish up there, ain't it? :) ..... well, I've typed it out ... so, I'm gonna let it stay ..... :)

@Lady
glad to know that I'm not a freak :) ... that others also have such thoughts ... :)

@Elisa
(blushes) ... thanks ... I hope so too .... yes, there are a lot of good things to parenting .... but the responsibilities are mind-boggling!

@C Addict
:) ... insightful and in-your-face as usual ... thanks 4 that! ... :)

@Puneet
the fact that children are getting smarter is good ... but then they only lose their innocence faster ... that's sad ...

@Elaine
Absolutely true ... you learn on-the-job ... and that's what frightens me ... after all as a parent one is responsible for nurturing a totally helpless child and instilling in him/her the ability to tackle the realities of the world ... But, I know for sure that all that succesful parenthood requires is .... planning, common sense, love and a sense of humour ... :)

That isn't gibberish! That was awesome!

I have four baby cousins in which I take care of most of the time whenever I can. I am a Sunday school teacher of seven year olds. I once taught 10 year olds. My experiences with children differ, but as I watch them grow I want to believe that they will bring the hope and peace that most of us long for.

That's why it's important for us, the ones with enough experience to share what we can so that we can continue to hope, to continue to build whatever we've left off and what was broken.

Ah... @_@ Talked too much. Lol! I agree, you'll make a great dad someday. make sure they grow up to be just as good as you. Maybe better. ;)

Take care and God bless!

Hey CTiger!
"but as I watch them grow I want to believe that they will bring the hope and peace that most of us long for"
... yes, we can just hope, pray and work as best as we can, for a better tommorow ... for us ... and the generations that follow ...

I'm not sure I want my kids to be like me ... I'm not that good a person ... need a lot of work ... in any way, parents can only love for and pray over their children ... it's God who has to do the work of moulding their hearts and drawing them to good ... C ya ... and God Bless You!

faith, upbringing and love make all the differences. as they say, good will prevail.
